Plain Sev or Ompudi or omapodi is very easy and addictive snack and is commonly used in Indian Chaats like Sev Puri, Masala Puri Bhel puri… For the flavor and digestion the Omkaalu or ajwain is used in this recipe. If you don’t like the ajwain, you can skip the same and prepare plain sev. This sev is not only for chaats, you can just eat it with Chai or Coffee or keep it in a bowl next to you and crunch it as you work. This truly happens in my home. My daughter loves to keep a bowl of this sev when she does her homework :) All this salty, crispy, crunchy snacks like chakli, kodbaLe, mixture …. are her companias during her homework sessions. Prepare this simple easy to make snack for Navarathri gombe bagina, as offering to Shri Krishna or for Deepavali as well.
